The Leader in Me

The Leader in Me

Neidig Elementary students are leaders! Our students are learning leadership principles through the work of the Leader in Me process, which is based on the work of Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The Leader in Me is an elementary version of this work. As described on the website, The Leader in Me is an ongoing 'process that teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students, and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.' We will consistently weave this process into the existing QCSD curriculum, and teach students about responsibility, creativity, ownership of learning, goal setting, self-awareness, initiative, communication, integrity, and teamwork. These skills represent the heart of QCSD's mission to create College and Career Ready students.

Here is a listing of the 7 Habits:

  1. Be Proactive - I am in charge of me.
  2. Begin with the end in mind - Have a plan.
  3. Put first things first - Work first, then play.
  4. Think win-win - Everyone can win.
  5. Seek first to understand, then be understood - Listen before you speak.
  6. Synergize - Together is better.
  7. Sharpen the saw - Balance is best.
